Joe Quesada Talks THOR, Captain America & Says The AVENGERS Has Started Filming !
NEWSARAMA had the good fortune to sit down and speak with Marvel's CCO Joe Quesada at C2E2 last week in Chicago. In an exclusive video interview Joe Q surprisingly, had quite a bit to say about Marvel's upcoming slate of movies. I transcribed the majority of the interview for you below.
From a visual standpoint, it's really exciting but in the hands of Kenneth Branagh and the entire cast, it's a pretty phenomenal take on the character. I think comic fans kind of have an idea of what this movie is going to be like but they really don't. They're going to be in for an experience thats unique. I think for the people that don't know who THOR is, even if you know the mythology, you're not going to get, I think, what you're going to expect. It's going to be radical and amazing.
On Captain America:The First Avenger..
You know what? Right now it's very tough to describe it. I just saw the first directors cut of Captain America about a week and a half ago. There's a very visual and visceral difference in the way that the movies are shot. There is a richness to both but they're very, very different tonally. And of course cap starts out as a period piece where as THOR is more of a fantastical piece although both are grounded very much in the real world. I think fans will see it and feel it when they see it on screen. Both of these are really going to be outstanding with amazing performances, great special effects. The Marvels characters come to life and for all of us who have been reading these since we were yay high, it's pretty astounding and an absolute thrill to sit there in theater and see these characters in 3D and flesh and blood.
On The Avengers..
The Avengers has started filming, right?
Yes. Yes it has.
Do you feel, without getting into specifics, that it really is going to be this culmination? That it is going to top everything?
Yes, I mean again, look at the cast. Just starting with the cast, it's like a rock concert. It's unbelievable, even in San Diego when they brought them all up on stage. You got to see all these amazing actors on stage. If you didn't get chills up your spine, you have no pulse. Basically, get yourself a casket and go home. And then you have Joss Whedon at the wheel. I've seen the screenplay, it's amazing. I've seen what we're going to do. I've seen designs, they're out of this world. It's going to be the quintessential superhero movie. I hesitate to say more but we're really, really, excited about it.
